About Book

Rabindranath Tagore was one of the practical innovators of modern Indian educational system. The last forty years of his life, he was content to be a school-master in humble rural surroundings of West Bengal where he had achieved international fame for his educational and poetic contribution. He was one of the first Indian to think out for himself and put in practical principles of education which have now become common place of educational theory, if not yet of practice. This edition has traced the influence of Tagore on the development of personality, learning habits, development of knowledge through concentration, and development of physical health etc. His views of educational ideas have a great impact on educational theory and practice. The views and ideas of Tagore drawn in this edition is useful for our contemporary educational system, although its aim of education may not be indoctrination, but the development of power to form social judgments may establish the true spirit and temper of democracy.
